About Us

We are Valorant K9 Academy


The leading experts in canine behaviour and training based in Durham, North East England.

Valorant K9 Academy was founded in 2021 by Adam Wilson of Parkview K9, and Jonny Richardson of Marjax K9. With their shared obsession for dog training and behaviour, and matching philosophies on true balanced training, a collision of worlds ensued and a coalition was formed.

Located in Durham, North East England, our training centre specialises in canine behaviour and training, offering an experience like no other. We provide realistic, proven and effective training that works, and has worked for hundreds of dogs throughout the UK and internationally.

Five-star rated

We're happy to let our satisfied clients do the talking for us, and we've received nothing short of amazing feedback from each review to date.

Bespoke experience

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to dog training, so we've simplified our approach in a way that makes it both individual, and relatable.

Online academy

We have built our own online dog training platform to help owners to learn more about training wherever they are, at their own pace.

Payment plans

Quality dog training is a financial investment, so we've partnered with PayPal Pay In 3 to help owners to make training accessible to them.

First aid trained

Our trainers are first aid certified, so in the unlikely event of an accident or injury, our trainers are equipped on how to respond.

The principles we live by

Our alliances formed with leading experts in their respective fields.



Structure provides our dogs with consistent guidelines and dependable routines they can use to orient themselves in the world. 



Leading by example sets our dogs up for maximum success. When we’re calm and collected, they respond in turn.



Communication is a two-way street, and our dogs provide us with all of the information we need. We just need to learn how to listen.



Without relationship, everything we’ve trained equates to little. The relationship is the glue that holds all of the hard work together.

Our Academy Team are handpicked experts

Each of our trainers are experienced, approachable, and always available for help and support.
